  • It’s with a great deal of saddness that we allow Emma to join Alfred on the hill at Freeze. We’ll always rembember her beautiful yard and flowers. My copy of “The Talent for the Game” filmed in her house is a treasured memorial of “how it was in Garfield” in those days. I worked with Alfred during my summers at the JE Love company. Quiet, hardworking and devoted are just a few of my pleasant memories there in the reel loft. I hope someone has kept at least one of the hammer handles Alfred wore thru during all those years of driving tines. Those hammer handles say a lot about Alfred and Emma and there marriage. Steady, on going, punctual, caring and dependable Alfred with Emma waiting and ready at lunch and dinner in-between tending her beautiful gardens and talking with all the passer-byers. The way it used to be in my youth and a time I’ll never forget. Goodby Emma and thank you for the gentle memories, soft words and caring heart.

    Very Sincerely

  • Dear Harvey,

    I remember many years ago when my family and I went with you to Garfield and I remember being at your Mother’s house. I still can kind of picture her house and garden. I was in Ritzville last weekend and saw the notice of her passing in the Spokesman. So know I’m thinking of you…. it’s times like these when we appreciate our dear good friends. You were so good to Mom and Dad. I see that your Mom had a good long life and I know you and your family are grateful for that. Please send my hellos to Gary, Ronnie and Pennie; I still remember them so well. My very best to you and your family. Bob joins me in sending our sympathy to you. With much love,
